Motorhead’s Lemmy: ‘Mitt Romney is a monster’

The US presidential election takes place tomorrow (November 6)

Motorhead frontman Lemmy has called Republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romney a “monster”.

The metal legend made the comments to Rolling Stone, urging readers not to vote for the right-wing candidate in tomorrow’s election in the United States.

He said: “Please, please don’t vote for Mitt Romney. Fuck him. Repeal abortion law is the first thing he’ll do. Fucking monster.”

He also spoke about Romney’s rival, incumbent President Barack Obama, saying: “I mean, the poor fucker’s only just gotten rid of all that George Bush shit that he left, or is trying to. And he’s being stonewalled by the fucking Congress all the time. I don’t know how he’s gotten anything done. They should be glad. I mean the alternative is Mitt Romney.”

Lemmy then went on to air his thoughts on Muse, commenting: “I’ve not got much to say about them. I’ve only heard about two tracks and I wasn’t impressed. But I’m hard to impress.”

Last month, Lemmy spoke out about plans for Motorhead‘s forthcoming 40th anniversary, which will take place in 2015. He said the celebrations would probably involve “naked women”.

Speaking to Billboard, Lemmy revealed that the band are on the cusp of starting work on the follow-up to their 2010 album, ‘The World Is Yours’.

He said of their 21st LP: “We’re gonna start in the New Year, go into the studio in January. We’ll go into the rehearsal room about a month before the album and just bash stuff out.”

The metal veterans will play 10 UK shows this month, starting tonight (November 5) at Wolverhampton Civic Hall and running until November 18 when the band plays Bristol’s Colston Hall.
